DescriptionThis is a great, easy to find, and easy to get down warm-up route for the Hidden Wall. Beware, there is some loose stuff above the bolt. Move carefully, and don't place gear behind it.
Belay and start on a fairly flat slab ledge above a blunt arete. Move up the slab, around the tree to reach the crack start in the obtuse dihedral. Follow the crack up to a bolt. Make several technical moves up the face past the bolt until you can reach an undercling near the anchor (crux), maybe PG13 here. Plug some gear and finish to the anchors.
LocationWhen the approach trail meets the Hidden Wall, turn left and go slightly up hill past a blunt arete. Look right and you will see the hard to miss arching crack in the corner.
The trail can often be over-grown, so a machete might also be a good addition to your rack. It's worth the effort.
